I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience working with marginalized populations of all ages. I completed my Master's degree and Bachelors at University of Nevada Las Vegas and my clinical hours in various agencies in Clark County, Nevada. In the field of Social Work, my experience has been working with a diverse population as colorful as the Las Vegas Strip ranging from victims of sex trafficking, people affected by homelessness, those with mental health issues and parents with students in a middle school setting. I enjoy working with adolescents and parents, where I take a systems approach to family dynamics. When working with adults, I enjoy helping people understand mental health issues to help lower the stigma in mental health, which can lead to providing natural methods of coping and support. I believe that using an eclectic, client-centered approach in therapy coordinated with non-judgemental support. I hope my clients have an opportunity to work through their current situation and learn more effective coping skills.
If you feel I will be a good fit for your personal situation, I would be happy to help you through therapy.

Michele is a great listener and offers supportive insight and helps to guide me and my thoughts in a positive and productive direction. I have greatly appreciated how easy she is to talk to and working with her feedback.
I feel like Michele understands me when speaking to her about my concerns. I sometimes feel like she is reading my mind.
Very timely in responses, always available. I couldn't give enough stars for what a great fit she is. I have had 4 other therapists and I feel she is the best one for me.
She has understood many side of me. I would not call myself easy or compliant all the time and she knows how to deal with me. I have had hard times and haven't talked to her as long as I would like to. That is on me. I hate giving into weakness but she doesn't make me feel weak. I recommend her. As someone who has gone through distrustful people my whole life, I wouldn't trust anyone but her.
She is patient, practical, and understanding. She has excellent, concrete, ideas for ways to improve what is going on. Easy to talk to.
Michele is professional and experienced. She is able to relate to my comments/concerns. Provides me with actual ways to correct certain behaviors and provides a path to follow. I am a week or two in and its been the best decision I have made in regards to therapy. This is perfect for a busy guy like me.
Michele always looks at what I'm worried about from a different perspective and respectfully helps me work through my issues.
My first time in therapy and I couldn't have been paired with a better therapist. I absolutely love her "to the point" responses. There are no unresolved questions because she goes straight after the root of the issue. I love the texting feature for therapy... works very well with my busy schedule. Michele is enormously responsive... I go no more than a few hours without assistance from her. I am grateful.
I think that Michele is absolutely awesome at what she does. She understands what the issues are, she doesn't judge and she's extremely nice about everything.
Michele has been great. She is so supportive but still unbiased, she works with you and shows you different ways to think of things. Even just working with her for the short time I have, has made a huge difference. I’m so glad I was matched with her!
Absolutely wonderful. Amazing with boundaries, non judgmental, kind, positive and very responsive. I’m so grateful.
Michele is extremely knowledgeable and doesn’t cast judgement. She makes you feel comfortable and helps you get to the root of your issues. I highly recommend her.
Michele has been very wonderful and understanding, always on top of everything!
Michele has been great to work with. She is very knowledgeable and any time I have needed her she has responded quickly and helped efficiently. I have already grown so much with my anxiety in our short time together. I look forward to getting past anxiety and I have faith this is possible.
Michele is very good at understanding my concerns. Also she responds quickly so I know I can reach her anytime.
So far my experience has been well, all my questions are being answered and the way I’m feeling is also explained through worksheets.
She's very understanding and compassionate with me.
I had to change my first counselor because she wouldn’t get back to me for a few days at a time, despite her telling me it would only take her 24 hours. Michele is the complete opposite- she’s persistent and responsive. She is very encouraging and non-judgmental. It’s nice to have someone to talk to that will understand what you’re saying and going through. Thanks for everything, Michele!
